know one thing about him. he does not fail. let's hear it for the next president of the united states. [applause] >> thanks, sweetie. that's quite an introduction here. i got how many introductions tonight? anyone else want to offer an introduction? thank you. this really is a critical time for the country, and i think a time of choice. elections are always about choice. i think the choice is in more stark relief than most electrics. i think in part because of where the country is. i think when you have $16 trillion in debt, when you see places like europe facing fiscal calamity or crisis, while you recognize these are critical times, what you have in this country, 23 million americans out of work, 23 million. when half the kids coming out of college can't find work or work consistent with an education that includes college, think about that? this is america. what's happened? and so the president and i offered two very distinct paths. his path is one which has been not just spoken about, we've seen it. we don't have to guess what his path might look like or what he would do, because h

trying to find solutions to the problems of the united states of america. if he loves the united states of america, he should be out on his hinny getting this stuff done instead of talking all over this television and running romney down. host: thanks for the call from dayton, tennessee. want to give you one more story on the day, this from "the washington post," for politicians privacy vanishes in the age of video technology. mitt romney's mistake in speaking bluntly at a may fundraiser was not only in the words he spoke but failing to anticipate the ears they might breach, and audience that looked like an exclusive group of republican donors this week multiflied thanks to the pervasiveness of video technology. they are already confiscating smart phones but they have been largely overmatched as time and again moments intended to be kept secret have turned up on the internet. there is a total collapse of the notion of private space that the republican strategist, and top advisor of senator john mccain's presidential campaign in 2008, increasingly, politicians who say one thing behind cl
of partisan contention. the united states senate passed essentially this legislation 95 to 5 and an amendment by my friend, mr. coburn, to a larger piece of legislation. there is broad agreement in the senate, which democrats control and republicans say this is a federal expense we no longer need to incur. this is a small step in the right direction. it will save taxpayer dollars for things that people need as oppose todd things that politicians and political parties want. we ought to take this opportunity, work together, save the money, reduce the deficit by at least a modest amount, spend money in places where it's necessary and pass this bill. it's quite simple piece of legislation. those folks that have different point of view on other things, bring your legislation to the floor, propose the legislation and we'll deal with it. but no reason to pay for the democratic and republican national conventions with taxpayer funds. one last point if i may, mr. speaker, we don't do this for anybody else. there are other political groups and parties in america that would like their conventions paid f

the past two years combined. meanwhile the united states government backing away from the spontaneous attack description by the administration's spokesmen and spokespersons over the past week about events in libya, events that led to the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. fox news has confirmed from an intelligence source on the ground in benghazi that there was no significant or sizable demonstration of any kind in benghazi when the attacks on the consulate were launched. the white house has now apparently decided that the investigation may well lead to a different conclusion than the one the administration has been so certain about for almost a week. >> what i can tell you that we have provided information about what we believe was the precipitating cause of the protests and the violence based on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating and, that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. lou: the libyan government, an intelligence source in benghazi, eyewitnesses in benghazi
. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking about the video really is to distract from the real problem. gerri: you have a lot of experience in these proceedings as deputy secretary of defense under george w. bush. people staid it's bush's fault the arab world is in unrest today. do you agree? how do you respond? >> i don't at all. look, these extremists were breeding in the arab world for years under horrible dictators. 9/11 happened with basically before george w. bush even appeared, and i believe in fact that the dictatorships of the arab world gave credit the to the extremists who attacks the governments for denying freedom to their people. sooner or later, those governments collapse both because of age and also, frankly, because ashes want freedom as well, and

you are president of the united states, you are president of all the people. not just the people who voted for you. >> you've got to look at what the guy has talked about through the whole campaign. he believes that every american has to have skin in the game. has to have a stake. and he doesn't want what the president wants works i is a bigger, more bloated government that's taking more people's money and being more oppressive on people's lives. he wants to empower individuals through sacrifice and opportunity to get their lives as date as they can and be make america greater. >> the real story behind these comments is what is behind it is president obama's very deliberate attempt to do class warfare as part of his campaign strategy. it's president obama who has decided to divide the electorate down those levels. >> i get the general feeling that with more and more people becoming dependent on government, that by next july we could perhaps be so -- it will be dependence day, not independence day. this is not something i am just feeling alone. >> oh, come on. oh, come on. >> this cou
of the united states, you're president of everybody, for everybody, you have to fight for everybody. i think that's the sentiment that democrats see as being the most problematic for romney. >> the president repeated that on letterman last night, saying, you know, one of the things i learned as president is that you represent everybody, and, indeed, it's a message -- when all this came out even the talk about being a divider and not a uniter i thought about the president on the stage in 2008 in grant park, we have the sound when he talks about the people that didn't vote for him. let's play that sound. >> to those americans who -- whose support i have yet to earn, i may not have won your vote tonight, but i hear your voices, i need your help and i will be your president too. >> i mean, you talk about a lot has been said about the president's comments at a fund-raiser when he talks about people clinging to guns and religion. the take away, the thing he was trying to communicate is those people may not be supporters, may not vote for me, but i've got to try to convince them, part and parcel of
